Battlefield High School gave me opportunities and helped me into the person I am today. Battlefield gave me a platform to be someone that others in the school are able to look up to and talk to. Being at battlefield, I was able to be involved in many different activities, clubs, and events due to our amazing SCA and principal Mr.Fererra. Battlefield is one of the very few schools that is open to having student led events and clubs for everyone. Battlefield offers a Mental Health club all the way to an Educators Rising club. This is one of the best things about Battlefield High School, because everyone is able to be involved and everyone gets a say in something!

Battlefield High School has been a great place not only for me but all of my peers. I have learned and grown during these past three years in BHS, not only academically, but also at a personal level. Most of the teachers show real talent and passion for teaching, and although the Chemistry department seems to be the weakest on this area, all others have proven to be great. I am truly enjoying my secondary education in BHS, it is my second home!
Battlefield high school is an excellent and interesting school. Battlefield is a very STEM based school, but they also have very good art and performance programs and classes. The clubs and activities are personally one of my favorite things about Battlefield. Compared to my previous school, Battlefield has a multitude of diverse clubs that are all unique. The teachers are also very great, I’ve had a lot of good teachers that are dedicated to their job and prioritize students education. Teachers are very diverse and experienced, located throughout all departments. The only thing that I wish would improve about Battlefield is if there was more diversity in the student body as well as better funding for the wide range of clubs that are offered instead of exclusively football.
